May Nature Desktop Calendar: Birth Root, Red Trillium

My May Nature Desktop Calendar is a few days late—because I couldn’t decide which wildflower to feature in the photo! May is all about wildflowers for me, each day a new flower blooming, everywhere you look, even the dandelions, I love them all. It’s so hard to think of only choosing one, but after four […]

April Featured Feline Artwork and Desktop Calendar: Their Faces to the Sun

Mimi and Mewsette settled in the sun from the window on the landing, both of them enjoying the wash of the warm light on their faces as the shadows crept up over their backs. Often, big soft Mewsette settles somewhere and soon I see little Mimi tucked up against her, two girls enjoying some girl […]

April Nature Desktop Calendar: Pear Trees on Main Street

Spring has come round again, and Carnegie’s Main Street is once again awash in white blossoms—a little earlier than usual this year. A freeze damaged many of the blossoms and the display may not be as vibrant as usual, but I have a painting for that. In April, when the ornamental pears bloom, Main Street […]

March Featured Artwork and Desktop Calendar: Morning Shift Studio

March is a month of change so the choice of feline art for this month is all over the place. This is often the month I’ll choose a monochromatic image or nearly so or even black and white because all other months have color associations for me but March has many, I had a dozen […]

March Nature Desktop Calendar: “You’re My Best Frond”

“You’re My Best Frond” features two tiny fiddlehead ferns just emerged from the leaf litter along the Panhandle trail, caught at just the right angle. They’re rooted in the spot so they’re kind of stuck with each other. It’s a good thing they’re “such good fronds”! It still makes me laugh whenever I look at […]

February Feline Art and Desktop Calendar: “Darling Clementine”

To be perfectly honest, I featured this painting as a monthly desktop calendar in January 2013. I’ve been thinking a lot about Namir lately and the time when I painted this watercolor. I decided that if you saw and downloaded this desktop calendar four years ago and still remember it, you probably like it, and […]

From January 2015, one of my favorite sketches, and it also won both a CWA Certificate of Excellence and a Muse Medallion for illustration in the 2015 Communications Contest. It’s inspired by Bella watching a snow flurry, and in honor of her new status as a member of our feline family here I’ve chosen “Snowy […]

January Featured Nature Art and Desktop Calendar: “I Chased a Sunset”

…and it disappeared over the edge and took a piece of my soul with it. Really, on the way home from a quick errand to a shopping center I encountered a stunning winter sunset just beginning to color and decided to take a detour through a local park to see it in progress. All I […]

December Feline Featured Artwork and Desktop Calendar: “Afternoon Nap”

A Portrait of an Old Cat: Afternoon Nap ~~~ An old cat, a gentleman, he has found a quiet spot, upstairs in the afternoon, and has so perfectly placed himself a little off-center on the expanse of white bedspread, illuminated by stark winter light through the window. (Stanley finds all the best places.) ~~~ Doesn’t […]
